Subject: [PATCH] doc: emphasize stash "--keep-index" stashes staged content
Date: Wed, 11 Oct 2017 04:46:30 -0400 (EDT)
Message-ID: <alpine.LFD.2.21.1710110443360.11205@localhost.localdomain> (raw)

It's not immediately obvious from the man page that the "--keep-index"
option still adds the staged content to the stash, so make that
abundantly clear.
